been three ceasefires in the last month all violated by the terror groups. egypt mediated quietly to bring quiet to the region. three times in the last month and there have been 300 rockets fired at israel within the last month from inside gaza. every time we try to reach a ceasefire with hamas, it was violated from their side. we don't want the rocket fire. we'd be crazy to want rocket fire on tel aviv tonight. we have 5 million people under rocket fire from tel aviv to jerusalem down to the outskirts of gaza. we don't want this situation. >> both sides always say the other side broke the ceasefire. that i know you're representing a position and i respect that and i'm glad you came on here. i've got to ask you about the statehood question. for me, for decades now i've been saying don't go the violence route don't go to truffle, it's stupid, immoral not going to give you your position and you don't kill civilians and then have the moral high ground. they go for statehood and say this is the peaceful solution and this is exactly what israel did. we're going to the u.n. what's wrong

this is different than what's happening in egypt. they are not protesting the movie. it was fairly obvious almost the c.i.a. writes up a report that explains this is a terrorist attack and someone in the administration amended it to say or it could have been about the movie. >> they certainly didn't want to say al-qaeda, hamas or hezbollah. they didn't want to blame someone early. here is the white house defending their position, the spokesperson president press briefing. >> there are no unanswered questions about ambassador rice's appearance on sundays shows and the talking points that she used for those appearances that were provided by the intelligence community. those questions have been answered. >> cenk: yeah, look, again i'm not putting it on susan rice. someone changed the talking points. john mccain is on with her on that same face the nation says no way it's a terrorist attack, it was coordinated. >> they had the talking points and went against them. you're with the three amigos, you're the fourth amigo. >> cenk: let's go on to something different. touree. >> old white establishment fol

. >> john: right we know that was the reason for our attack on egypt. we know there were demonstrations throughout the middle east because a tv show has been showing the trailer. did the state department just get bad intel? i'm having a difficulty understanding the right-wing theory of what kind of cover up there could have been. >> we know she basically read when she did her round of sunday talk show appearances the weekend after the attack. we know what that intelligence said at least the unclassified version of it that were given out after the hearings on friday said, and it is exactly what she said on tv but that leads to the question of where that intelligence came from or why the talking points were constructive in that way. >> john: this is where i think it gets confused for conservatives and liberals the talking points came from the cia, right? >> yes but petraeus said the talking points were not representative of everything they knew. >> john: isn't the most likely explanation is they were trying to handle things discretely and between libya and the u.s.

about our embassy in cairo egypt. local tv host had played this clip incessantly and raging muslims -- enraging muslims throughout egypt who stormed our embassy and tore down the american flag and put up an islamist flag. a few hours later the -- they said it was over the video even though the next day the president referred to it as an act of terror. four americans were killed including our ambassador. ever since then, our republican friends have been using this terror attack, i'm sorry did i say using? i meant exploiting this terror attack to smear the president in any way they can. as you know, in 9-11-01 a terror attack is a reason to unite and cheer a president and in 9-11-12, it is an excuse to smear a president. there have been rumors of course that the president might be nominating susan rice, our u.n. ambassador to be his next secretary of state. and the most unlikely love couple of all in d.c., john mccain and lindsey graham got together to -- well, to say a lot of ignorant stuff. let's begin with j
